This channel has a great significance for the inhabitants, and also for me, I have experienced it first-hand as a child, 71 years ago we liberated by the Canadians, with many dead soldiers, are now buried at the military cemetery


History;
The Belgium-Canada was established in 1995 aims to consolidate and further develop the relations between the two countries. They also want to stress the gratitude of the Belgian people of Canada and the Canadian people. Canada has brought an immense sacrifice in World War II. There were more than one million young Canada these deployed, of which 450 000 would never see their beautiful homeland. On the territory of Maldegem found more than 800 Canadian soldiers eternal rest.
On the Balgerhoeke bridge edge Eeklo also strikes us a Sherman Tank. Obviously, this recalls the liberation of the city of Eeklo on September 15, 1944 by the 4th Canadian Pantzer brigade
During World War II the canal played a major role in conquering our country in 1940, but also by the withdrawal of the Germans in 1944.
Today the peaceful “Schipdonkkanaal” is a tourist ribbon through the Meetjesland.= (an area)
The towpaths along the canal are also a boon for walkers and cyclists
